See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/3YA9> for advice on setting up a
newsletter type list.

For your question, as long as the list's content filtering is turned
off, you can just email your newsletter to the list posting address
the same as if you were mailing it individually.

If your concern is that when you go to the admindb interface to approve
the message, you see what looks like raw HTML in the message body,
that is just the way it is rendered in the admindb interface. When you
accept it, it will be delivered just as if you had sent it directly to
the recipients.
